1. Take the world with all its wealth,
Take my life with all its health;
Take my heart with all its love,
But give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
He is all the world to me;
Give me Jesus, only Jesus,
He is all in all to me.

2. Take my gold with all its power,
Take my days—yes, every hour;
Take my eyes with all their tears,
But give me Jesus. [Refrain]

3. Take my hand with all its might,
Take my pride with all its blight;
Take my tongue with every word,
But give me Jesus. [Refrain]

4. Take my time with all its sin,
Take my soul, make pure within;
Take my joys and all I have,
But give me Jesus.
